Beautiful New York

A Celebration of the City

New York Is… Sex

02-14 SexIn the TV show, Sex and the City, there is a line: “New York City is all about sex. People getting it, people trying to get it, people who can’t get it. No wonder the city never sleeps. It’s too busy trying to get laid.” To that end, this city is the home of such prestigious shops as Babeland, The Pleasure Chest, and Eve’s Garden. Books about sex, specific to New York City, can be found on mainstream shelves and a museum (not unlike those in Paris and Amsterdam) is devoted to all things sex. In a city where eight million strangers find themselves within touching distance on a daily basis, is it any surprise that the erotic tension bubbles over?
